Glad you enjoyed that, Mark. I really dig Sam Chatmon, such a great singer.
Fun fact; His birth name was Vivian Chatmon but he changed it to Sam 'cause he thought it sounded too much like woman.
I don't believe his claim that he was the half brother of Charley Patton.

I gotta keep listening to that 7nd verse.

Re-Listening, I really hear "town" and "swear"

Well, now I ain’t gon’ holler, town’s too small, if you don't catch me, woman, swear that's all

I hear "swear" now too, Harry, and I do think it sounds more like "town's" than "time's". Good work!
